Opposition Leader Kamla Persad Bissessar has added her voice to the tributes pouring in for the late historian, Angelo Bissessarsingh. He died this morning after a lengthy battle with pancreatic cancer. In her tribute, the opposition leader lamented that Bissessarsingh died just a few weeks shy of the publication of his latest book. She is also suggesting that his work is included in the nation school curriculum so that he continues to live among us as a great storyteller and narrator of our lives. She also said the noted historian had dedicated his life to telling our stories so that generations unborn would get a glimpse of our history and our culture.
